Apple Watch provides users a unique way to interact, launch and control Nike+ Running from their home screen.
Available April 24, Nike+ Running App users around the world will have even more ways to connect with the global running community through Apple Watch. Nike+ Running App users will be able to access distance, duration and pace right on their Apple Watch. Plus, runners will see when friends send them a cheer, and with Bluetooth-enabled headphones, can listen to music wirelessly during runs.
“We took the best of Nike+ Running and built a seamless experience for Apple Watch customers,” said Stefan Olander, Nike Vice President/GM, Nike+. “We’re pleased to be one of the first apps on Apple Watch allowing runners to connect, challenge, cheer and motivate their friends on this exciting new platform.”
Glances on Apple Watch will allow Nike+ Running App users to get a quick view of the Nike+ leaderboard so they can see where they stack up and how hard to push it on their next run.
Actionable Notifications will easily allow the Nike+ Running community to quickly send a cheer to a friend on the run, even from the Lock Screen.
Since its inception in 2006, Nike+ Running has helped millions of athletes track, measure, share and compare their runs with a global community, encouraging them to run smarter and run more. The Nike+ Running App is a coach, running buddy and cheering section all in one, delivering training programs, real-time audio feedback and tools to track and celebrate progress.
